ADIF : an NGO member of DIOFAP/Uvira, a network of 7 NGO’s financed by Mensen Met een Missie (MM- The Netherlands)

Who are we ?

We are a non-profit organization whose activities focus on the improvement of health, food safety, environment, gender and human rights, justice and good governance for an integral development of the population.
ADIF is community-based association, which means that its creation comes from the real needs of the community members in its working area.
As such, we organise many activities related to the fields cited above, but especially concerning the rights of women.

Why our organization ?

The territory of Fizi in the province of South-Kivu knows a particular situation; after many wars between different armed groups which happened endemically in the area from 1996 until 2004, the security, economic and social situation has significantly improved.  The current peace, although weak, has allowed the local people to prosper and develop within their communities.

However, citizens of Fizi face a lot of challenges in different domains: health, education, agriculture, human rights, land and customs conflicts and conflicts between indigenous. We see customary practices which do not favor the promotion and rights of women and children. So, women do not have rights regarding national and international legal instruments due to set customary practices, religious beliefs and ignorance within the community concerning the women themselves.

Because of those challenges, ADIF provides support for local communities in Fizi so they can develop. This approach is based on local and indigenous solutions for the resolution of problems.

a) General :
